Thursday 13 to Sunday 16 October 2022
In 2006, 12 friends set out to cycle from Taronga Zoo to the Western Plains Zoo with the simple goal of raising enough money to secure Dubbo a spot on the Charity Edition of Monopoly. Arriving in Dubbo after 420km over three days of cycling, with Dubbo securely on the Monopoly board, the Zoo2Zoo was born.
Since 2009, the Zoo2Zoo has raised in excess of $2,000,000 for the Black Dog Institute, a not-for-profit, educational, research, clinical and community-oriented facility offering specialist expertise in depression and bipolar disorder.
It is expected that each participant attempt to raise awareness and funds for the Black Dog Institute using the ‘everydayhero’ fundraising page.
This year will see the Sydney to Dubbo ride take place between Thursday 13 to Sunday 16 October 2022.
Day 1 sees us ride from Taronga Zoo, Mosman to Echo Point
Day 2 from Echo Point to Bathurst (via Lithgow and Tarana)
Day 3 from Bathurst to Molong (via Newbridge and Blayney)
Day 4 from Molong to Taronga Western Plains Zoo, Dubbo via Cumnock and Yeoval
The cost of the ride is $750. This includes all accommodation, meals and “First Beer in Gear”. Dinner and drinks at own expense. You will need to own a Zoo2Zoo cycle jersey (doesn’t change, so the one worn in 2008 can be still worn. These are $100).
